Right, I know about that. I'm not willing to go down the route towards
DITA until I understand more about structured FM and Docbook, though.

to investigate structured Frame.

I have chosen to start with DocBook rather than DITA, just because I've
worked in structured Frame with a DTD that was based on full DocBook.

Question is, which version of DocBook should I use in order to get the
most leverage from the resources included in Frame 7.1 (note the
